BRISBANE -- The CEO of Nextdoor, a social network designed to connect neighbors with each other and police, has pleaded no contest to misdemeanor hit-and-run for fleeing a Highway 101 crash that injured a woman last August, attorneys said Friday.

Nirav Tolia, 42, was sentenced Thursday to 30 days in jail -- though the judge offered an alternative of serving in a weekend sheriff's work detail program for a year, which Tolia agreed to do -- along with two years probation.

Tolia, who was initially charged with felony hit-and-run in the Brisbane collision, had his charge reduced to a misdemeanor after the District Attorney further examined the case, a change that Tolia's lawyer said in a statement made him feel "relieved."

"Nirav fully cooperated with authorities throughout these proceedings and is relieved to put this matter behind him," said Tolia's attorney, Dan Barton.

According to court documents, Tolia was driving northbound in the number two lane on Highway 101, just south of the Candlestick Park off-ramp when he quickly changed to the right lane, causing a woman in her car to swerve and hit the center divide. Tolia's car and the victim's car did not collide, and Tolia continued to drive home.

In addition to his work service and his probation, Tolia will also have to pay fees for restitution and court fines.

"The company fully supports Nirav and is continuing to stay focused on the needs of our members," Nextdoor said in a statement released Friday.
